MAHWAH, N.J. - Sept. 6, 2023 - PRLog -- Today, AT Information Products (AT INFO) announced its launch of the RF Lite Pouch – the industry's first compact system intended for the automatic coding of flat-form bags and pouches. The RF Lite Pouch utilizes vacuum technology to expertly present the packaging to the Markoprint® industrial coder, ready for it to be marked with high-quality codes.
A flexible coding system for flexible packaging
As the use of flexible packaging materials grows, so does the need for a flexible, efficient, and cost-effective coding solution. Pouches and bags can be inherently tricky to code on-line, particularly when using pre-made pouches or trying to print onto filled packs. An off-line system, such as the RF Lite Pouch from AT INFO, offers the ideal alternative.
Key benefits of the system include:
- Compact bench-top system for the feeding and printing of film pouches
- Vacuum picking system with belt drive for smooth transportation
- Top loading hopper to maintain high throughput
- Outfeed catcher tray for printed pouches
The feeder accommodates both Thermal Inkjet and Piezo Inkjet with print areas up to 1.3-inches tall. Markoprint® systems print alphanumeric text, GS1 application identifiers including linear and 2D barcodes, and graphics that help manufacturers comply with stringent regulations.
Innovation in feeding technology sets RF Lite Pouch apart from the competition
Most feeding systems use friction rollers to guide the bottom substrate out of the hopper and onto the belt. This technology works well for packs or rigid pouches of a uniform thickness but when the material is more flexible, or when there's a resealing feature, it becomes significantly more difficult to achieve accuracy and consistency.
The RF Lite Pouch, therefore, leverages vacuum technology to grab the flexible substrate from the bottom of the stack using suction to provide a reliable and repetitive feeding process.
Where to deploy AT INFO feeding and coding systems
Manufacturers in need of printing high-resolution codes on flat packaging materials are ideal customers for AT INFO integrated systems. The list of applicable industries is vast but is particularly useful in Food & Beverage, Cannabis, Personal Care and Pet products. RF Lite Pouch is a viable alternative for directly coding flexible materials as manufacturers seek to move away from labeling to save costs on paper labels, printing, and applying those labels.
